Canada | October 22 – 27, 2018
Please join us on an exclusive journey for WWF’s Partners in Conservation to Churchill from October 22 – 27, 2018, to experience one of the most remarkable natural wonders on Earth—the congregation of hundreds of polar bears awaiting their annual return to the ice. Positioned on the shores of Hudson Bay, Churchill is a unique Arctic community with a rich history and spectacular scenery.
High levels of polar bear activity are typical this time of year. From spirited play-fighting between males to the powerful show of force that a protective mother displays when sheltering a young cub, you will see firsthand how their behavior is dynamic, regal and whimsical.
